Recap of a really old review: Strollaway by Metrotots! (giveaway closed)

Congrats to my winner: Beverly Hernandez

Back when I started this blog in August of 2009, there were a number of companies who were so kind to me and my brand-new review blog. These companies were so generous and sent me items to review, even though I had hardly any readers and low blog traffic at the time. I am eternally grateful to these companies and think of them fondly.

One of the great companies that said "yes" to my email asking for a product to review was Metrotots, the makers of the Strollaway. I am not exaggerating when I say that this product has had a huge impact on our quality of life in our condo. I hate clutter and stuff in places where it doesn't belong, and avoiding that is so hard with two small kids. When we brought a double stroller home and added it to the pile in our entryway, along with our umbrella stroller and our single stroller, I about cried.

Then we got the Strollaway and since then our double stroller has been neatly stored on the back of our bedroom door. It's out of sight, off the floor, and away from where toddler fingers can play with the dirty wheels.  We've had no problems with it holding our bulky double stroller, and even I, at only 5 feet tall, have no problem lifting the stroller up onto the hook. It's secure and easy to use.  I LOVE this product. It's the first thing on my list of recommendations when I'm talking to other families who live in a small space. Go here to read my original review, complete with pictures of where I store my single stroller!




Our double stroller, neatly hung up on the Strollaway.
